CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on therapy that can release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system. We work hands-on with your body and your nervous system to help re-establish balance and optimum function. We work with the spine and the skull and its cranial sutures, diaphragms, and fascia. In this way, the restrictions of nerve passages are said to be eased, the movement of cerebrospinal fluid through the spinal cord is optimized, and misaligned bones may be restored to their proper position. We work from head to toe to positively affect the musculoskeletal system, as well as the nervous system.
CranioSacral builds health in the brain and nervous system, it is effective in assisting the prevention of chronic conditions, including the problems of aging, stiffness, dryness, memory loss, inflammation, immune imbalances.
This therapy can treat mental stress, neck and back pain, migraines, TMJ Syndrome, and chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia.
The craniosacral system influences most all the other systems in the body. Most people are familiar with the heartbeat and the breathing but because the craniosacral system is so subtle it’s harder to feel.
CranioSacral is profoundly relaxing and healing. Most people tend to drift off during the experience, which is good, because the body simply works better relaxed than it does stressed out.
Some of the benefits may be a resolution of symptoms that have no relationship to the cranial system or to each other. Injuries are addressed, even those from long ago that don’t seem to be affecting us. Birth trauma may still be affecting you. There may be repercussions from an old auto accidents or childhood injury. Old surgeries or dental work can create strains. CranioSacral Therapy can assist in releasing these past injuries. You may feel a sense of spaciousness within yourself you might even notice more even relationships and the inability to focus. You may be able to stand straighter and breathe more easily and deeply. Pains may decrease. And you will feel deeply relaxed and centered.
This technique strengthens our whole system and creates a safe environment, so that the body can show these unresolved issues, and the practitioner can facilitate a resolution.
